SISHA (South East Asia Investigations into Social and Humanitarian Activities) is a registered Australian not-for-profit organization that strives to ensure justice and the protection of human rights for victims of human trafficking, bonded labor, physical and sexual assault and other forms of exploitation and oppression in South East Asia.
SISHA International Internship Program gives international university students and recent graduates the opportunity to gain field experience in a developing country working to help protect and prevent vulnerable people from human trafficking and other forms of exploitation. The Internship Program is a two-way training process, as interns learn from working side by side with a team of experienced international and local staff, whilst at the same time transferring their own skills and knowledge to their local counterparts.
Possible research topics include: increased number of child rape cases occuring in Cambodia, Cambodian orphanage activities and links to human trafficking, implementation and effectiveness of adoption laws and orphanage monitoring, the role of NGOs and law enforcement agencies in assessing and closing down orphanages (open to addtional topics).
